We are undeniably fortunate to have the opportunity to spend a few days in Palm Springs every winter with my in-laws.  If you live in Alberta, you know the winters can be brutally cold and snowy.  Our family has been incredibly lucky to be able to escape the chilly weather with this annual trip […]

A love letter to my kids – February 23, 2019| Drayton Valley Family Filmmaker

I have to confess that this “client” is one of my favourites (he happens to be my adorable little nephew).  As you can see from the date in the title, he’s currently a little older than he was in these photos, but what’s a year and a half delay between taking photos and blogging them?  […]

Baby J Newborn Documentary Session – June 25, 2016 | Drayton Valley Documentary Photographer

I can’t overstate how much I enjoy the company of this family.  They’re such a laid back and relaxed group, and it felt like we were a perfect fit for each other.  We’ve done a few session together now, but my friendship with them started waaaay back before any of us parents had kids.  We […]

B Family Documentary Session – September 17, 2017 | Drayton Valley Family Photographer

This photo session began with a Christmas present from the three adult children to their parents.  They purchased a gift card for the photos last Christmas, and we finally caught up with each other by mid-summer.  They chose to document a few hours at the family cabin, which happened to be located near a gorgeous […]

S Family Cabin Lifestyle Session – July 8, 2017 | Drayton Valley Documentary Photographer

It turns out that documentary sessions (mine, at least) tend to involve horses.  From newborn to family sessions, so many of my clients over the last year have requested a photo session on their own acreage or farm, and the majority of them have included these giant hoofed animals.  I am happy to oblige to […]

Miss K Newborn Session – September 19, 2016 | Drayton Valley Family Photographer

These families and I have spent many a photo session together.  I’m not sure on an exact number; let’s just say we go way back.  However, this was their first time testing the documentary session waters.  They knew what they wanted documented right away though, and I wasn’t surprised with their request.  When I think […]

W & L Family Golf Documentary Session – June 26, 2017 | Drayton Valley Family Photographer

While she was expecting, Miss L’s mom Kathryn mentioned to me that she was interested in photos that were not posed of the upcoming addition to their family.  She said her two boys were so active and busy that it would be easier on everyone to just do their thing and have me photograph it. […]

Miss L Lifestyle Newborn Session – November 16, 2016 | Drayton Valley Documentary Photographer

As a (mostly) documentary photographer I love telling people’s stories.  My goal is to capture and preserve for you the things that define your family.  This particular family has been in my life for a long time.  J and I met at the beginning of university, and our lives have taken a similar path as […]

R Family Biking Session – May 27 2017 | Drayton Valley Documentary Photographer

If anyone has been wondering why the blog has been extremely quiet over the last 9 or so months, this little peanut is most of the reason why.  Our latest last addition to our growing brood of females (no, we will not be trying again for a boy…we’ve decided we just don’t make them) arrived […]

Miss L Newborn Documentary Session – Aug 26 2016

It’s sharing time!  As you may have guessed from the title, this was the first actual documentary photo session that I had the opportunity to shoot.  This family specifically requested this style of session.  I totally believe this was fate, as I was a few months away from going on maternity leave, and I had […]
